Person Centered Care
Vicarage Farm is a place to call Home. We believe that all residents regardless of age or disability have a fundamental right to individuality and self determination. All our residents have a right to live their life in a manner they are accustomed to.
With this in mind, Vicarage Farm has adopted a Person Centered approach to care.
- We believe that it is our duty to support our resident’s well-being and self esteem by helping them gain and maintain as much independence as possible.
- We believe that our residents and families have developed personal resources and resilience from successfully meeting past challenges and that these are strengths that we build upon.
- We believe that our residents and families are partners in care and it is our duty to provide them with choices, information about choices, and to support their decision making.
- We believe that we are advocates for our residents and serve as role models in supporting resident self-determination.
- We believe that our residents are individuals and it is our duty to understand both their past and present as well as understanding their future aspirations in order to plan and meet their individual needs.
- We believe it is our duty to help our residents maintain their dignity by respecting their privacy and protecting their personal information.
- We believe that it is our duty to provide care with compassion and to protect our residents from harm/abuse, whether physical, verbal or psychological by anyone.
- We believe it is our duty to support the rights and views of our residents and to encourage and support residents to explore and develop their own beliefs and values.
- We believe that we can achieve more collectively and it is our duty to treat families, staff, volunteers, management, and representatives of outside agencies with respect and to work collaboratively to benefit our residents.
- We believe it is important for our residents to stay connected with their community and that it is our duty to provide an environment that supports continued relationships with friends and family.
- We believe that quality is what our clients say it is and that it is our duty to regularly ask for and respond to their feedback and input.
- We believe that we have a duty to continue to grow in our skills and knowledge in order to provide the best quality of care for our residents.
- We believe that it is important for each resident to be allowed to practice their religion of choice and attend appropriate religious services.
- We believe that care needs to be reviewed regularly at which the residents and or next of kin have the right to be present and be consulted, and informed of alternative options within their Care Plan.
- We believe that each resident should be allowed to manage their own Financial affairs as far as is practicable.
- We believe each resident should have access to a formal complaints procedure.
- We believe each resident be placed on the electoral register and given the opportunity to vote.
Our vision, mission, and values reflect these beliefs
